Fried foods need not be heavy or oily. When done well, fried foods have a wonderful crispy outside with the flavor and moisture sealed inside. For a discussion on frying techniques. In Italy, fresh porcini mushrooms are sometimes prepared this way. Since fresh porcini are not easily available in the States, I use portobello mushrooms instead, with excellent results.
